A "most promising lead" in search area Apr 7, 2014

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/malaysia-airlines-flight-370-a-most-promising-lead-in-search-area/
The Australian navy's Ocean Shield, which is carrying high-tech sound detectors from the U.S. Navy, picked up two separate signals within a remote patch of the Indian Ocean far off the west Australian coast that search crews have been crisscrossing for weeks. The first signal lasted two hours and 20 minutes before it was lost. The ship then turned around and picked up a signal again - this time recording two distinct "pinger returns" that lasted 13 minutes, Houston said.

...

Meanwhile, officials were trying to determine whether two separate sounds heard by a Chinese ship about 345 miles away from the Ocean Shield were related to the plane. The patrol vessel Haixun 01 first detected a brief "pulse signal" on Friday at the same frequency used by the airliner's black boxes. The ship detected a second signal on Saturday within 1.4 miles of the original signal, this one lasting for 90 seconds. Houston said China also reported seeing floating white objects in the area.

Further Development Apr 10, 2014

http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/world/2014/04/10/newday-mclaughlin-australian-plane-new-signals.cnn.html

A sonar buoy picked up ping signals.

I would think that means one of the sonar buoys thrown from a plane into the ocean search area picked up a signal and relayed it back to the plane?

Any Idea? Apr 10, 2014

Listen ... was that sound really a ping? -- by Jeanne Moos

http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/offbeat/2014/04/08/erin-pkg-moos-ping-sounds.cnn.html

I thought the locator beacon generates an ultrasonic signal. But in the demonstrations the signals seem to be audible.

Perhaps they're using a different type of pinger than those installed on the flight recorders?

I guess there are still some vestiges of public humiliation in civilized societies. In medieval times they resorted to stocks and pillories, and other punishments even worse.

Yueyin,

乍一看,我以为这些人都被判了死刑呢。 结果仔细看一下好像不是。 究竟 “被执行” 是指什么还是不懂。

1 民事诉讼中的被执行人

在法院对于一民事诉讼判决原告胜诉后,被告在赔偿问题上的法定时间内未完成判决书上所规定的赔偿金额而被法院强制执行赔偿,则称该被告为本次强制执行的被执行人[1]。
被执行人是指:在法定的上诉期满后,或终身判决作出后,拒不履行法院判决或仲裁裁决的当事人。

2 刑事诉讼中的被执行人

在一刑事诉讼案件判决被告死刑、徒刑或缓刑后,该被告就是这次刑事案件的判决的被执行人。



懂了。 原来指的是前者 - 民事诉讼案。

I thought it was odd that people get executed for some civil case legal matter.

法律上用语翻得不理想 Apr 15, 2014

Enforcement - 被强制服从、勒令遵从

IMO, this might be another case of bad translation that became standard legal terminology, i.e., "enforcement" or "to be enforced by (the court or the police)" - 翻为 "被执行". But I could also be all wet on this.

If a PERSON is executed, it means that he or she is put to death. It's very different than executing a will or executing a duty, etc..

按国内以前的说法,人被执行一般是指 被毙;人被处决 亦是如此。
